2: Warning: External Use Only

By Audrey

Mythical snakes have some pretty awe-inducing and hazardous capacities, like breathing and spitting out poison that can cause excruciating pain and decimate ecosystems. This episode is about these serpents, and also the Norse god Loki. Listen in on the long list of bad decisions that made Loki a recipient of the dreaded mythical snake venom facial. Then, learn about how some real world snakes can spit venom, what would actually happen if snake venom landed on your face, and a modern spin on the mythical venom facial.Today's ad is about Theriac and Theriaca Andromachi, used throughout the centuries first as a treatment for poisons and venom, and later on as a panacea.If you like the show, please leave a review and help spread the word!
